In this era of changing health care, nursing schools must educate students to assume new and different responsibilities while continuing to deliver quality patient care. Johns Hopkins University School of Nursing is designed to meet these goals of the 21st century. The Anne M. Pinkard Building, named in honor of a local philanthropist and friend of Hopkins Nursing, is situated in the heart of Baltimore City. The building is the first structure at Hopkins dedicated solely to nursing education and research. It also houses the Institute for Johns Hopkins Nursing and the Office of Nursing Research and Sponsored Projects. As students utilize the many outstanding resources provided in this facility, they will come to view the building as a sanctuary for learning and as a repository for one of the greatest treasures of all time—knowledge.
